KEYSTONE KOMMANDOS: SWAT officer attracts ridicule after he’s pictured with his rifle sight on backwards. “A SWAT team in upstate New York is being mocked as an example of the difference between military and police training after an officer was captured peering through a backwards sight on his combat rifle. As users on the military Reddit were quick to point out when the image was posted, the reverse sight makes it effectively useless. Users mocked the SWAT officers training and some went so far as to question the motives of some of the men serving in local law enforcement.”

That last is a bit unfair, but the militarization of police work — which, as I’ve noted, should be something very different from soldiering — is no joke.

Meanwhile, looks like he’s using an EOTech sight. Those are nice (I’ve shot with SayUncle’s) but I prefer the Aimpoint M4 myself.
